No; but still This is a great camera for the price. 1) Post slide film; full frame. 2) helps you master photography. 3) you truly are apart from the crowd.

Do not be afraid to learn Flash; but keep in mind; few places allow flash; I.E. concerts.

I agree; just have your photos put on cd/dvd; and ask to keep the negatives. Put them in a refrigerator. The film will last longer. Or so I have heard; If i remember correctly. Please do correct me if I am wrong. I am always wiling to learn.

So,
Digital: photo is saved as electronic information on a computer device.
Film: photo is physically imprinted on a solid medium which lasts almost indefinitely.

O.K. More detail: In a digital camera, the image is recorded by an electronic light sensor and saved on a memory card. a film camera is loaded with a plastic film coated with light sensitive material. Light striking the film causes a chemical reaction, imprinting an image onto the film which becomes visible and permanent during the development process. This creates a "negative" from which prints can be made.

That's a good camera for learning basic photography. I still love shooting film myself. These days, most decent photo labs will scan your roll of film onto a CD for you for a very reasonable price.

For black and while I usually reach for Kodax Tri-X (I love the mood it conveys). For color, I usually reach for Kodak Porta or Fuji Superia (they both come in a convenient range of film speeds). I don't really do slide film anymore (it's great if you need to archive many photos). But this is just me. Whatever you shoot, find a really good photo lab to handle your film.

Any film you want. Get to know them all and use whatever fits your vision. Welcome to the art of manual film photography! Take a seminar at your local camera store, or a photography class at your local college. That will set you off on the right foot.

The lens that came with your D3200 is a DX lens, designed for the DX format sensor that is in the camera. It is not compatible with your film camera. Because the lens is designed for the smaller format image sensor (which is smaller than 35mm film), it would vignette on your film camera.
On the other hand, you can use the lenses that you have for your Nikon film camera on the D3200.

On the Nikon USA site (the one you're already on), use the search function in the upper right-hand corner of basically any page. Search for "Where can I purchase Nikon products, cables, manuals and accessories?" and you'll find a page with all the information you need. Contact the Nikon Parts Department, whose number is listed there. The Nikon Store doesn't have the case.

I'd give you the phone number, quote the article, or give you a link to it, but I've done that sort of stuff before, and ended up having my answer taken down, because that apparently violates the terms of use and forum guidelines, so you'll have to search for yourself.

No, for two reasons, first it is a "G" type lens and has no aperture ring. Second, it is a DX lens and the sensor is too small for a 35 mm format camera. You need a lens like the AF 50mm 1.8D (very inexpensive)

Question

What is the operating environment of the FM10?

What is the temperature range within which the FM10 will reliably function? I'm referring both to the movement of the mechanical parts (as some lubricants can thicken in cold weather#, and to battery power for the meters. I'd like to know both the official operating temperature range, and the actual one, as determined by practical experience from users.

On that note, should the batteries fail in cold weather #or for any other reason), are batteries required in order for the camera to have any functionality, or does it have the ability to release the shutter and cycle the mirror without electrical power?
If it does have a mechanical backup, is the shutter speed selectable, or is it locked at a specific speed, such as 1/60th of a second?
